Introducing the Barry L. Zaret Young Investigator Awards Competition

This ever-popular competition has been renamed in honor of Barry L. Zaret, MD, MASNC, the founding editor-in-chief of the JNC.

Six finalists will be selected from top scoring abstract submissions and invited to compete orally in the Barry L. Zaret Young Investigator Award Competition at ASNC2023. Participation includes giving a 7-8 minute presentation followed by 4-5 minutes of moderated discussion and Q&A.


Any physician or scientist who is currently in a residency or fellowship or other training program, or within 3 years of finishing clinical or research training, and is age 35 and younger.


  • Finalists must present live, in person at ASNC2023 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Virtual presentations will not be allowed.
  • Industry employees are not eligible to present abstracts in the competition. However, abstracts with authors that are industry employees may be presented by another author with no industry affiliation.
  • Abstracts are not eligible for consideration if the same work has been published or presented at a U.S. national or international meeting at the time of submission.
Award Details:
  • Two first place winners (one clinical and one emerging science) will be selected among the finalists to receive the Barry L. Zaret Young Investigator $500 Awards. 
  • All six finalists will receive a $500 stipend, complimentary ASNC2023 registration, and a certificate of merit.
